Wild Card Races:

As our predictions stand, the National League will once more be a race between National League Central contenders the Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Cardinals, with the Washington Nationals and either the Los Angeles Dodgers or the Arizona Diamondbacks breathing down their necks.

In the American League, it projects to be the Houston Astros and the Boston Red Sox duking it out in the one-game playoff, with the Texas Rangers, New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Indians in the mix.

What do you all think? Are we close? Are we way off?  We’ll revisit these numbers later in the season, and we’ve saved the initial picks, so come October we’ll tell you which of our writers came the closest. Thanks to :

Alex Yalen, Matt Wojciak, Kyle O’Neill, Kyle Gehler, Jamey Vinnick, Josh Sadlock, Gabe Bogart, Ryan Witry and Adam Piede for participating (along with myself).  Isn’t it time for baseball yet?

    Hahahahahaha Indians and Tigers the same at 84, ahahahaha no!

    Tigers are going to win 91 games, the Tribe will win 82, Royals are going to tumble, their magic trick has been exposed and they are a weaker team this year, 87. Tigers are going to win the division.
    Also, without Hunter the Twins aren’t going to break 80, the Sox might surprise people and do it.

      I suppose that opinion ha snothing to do with being a Tigers fan (lol) We’ll see… we’ll come back later in the season and see what happens… as we all know, it could be nearly anything.
